MPSJ officer in assault video should apologise: Subang Jaya rep
Cuepacs, however, says the officer's action was self-defence.A - The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) officer who was involved in an altercation with a middle-aged man on Thursday should apologise, said Subang Jaya assemblyperson Michelle Ng. She said that while the man was wrong for attacking the officer using an umbrella, the latter should not have responded with excessive force. "I am very sad and disappointed with the action of the MPSJ enforcement officer roughing up a man in a video clip that was taken in USJ 9 which has since gone viral. "Although the man's was wrong for first hitting the enforcement officer using an umbrella, the officer should not have responded using excessive force. "The officer should apologise to the individual while MPSJ must also make things right with him," Ng said in a statement. She added the council must also take the necessary measures to ensure that its officers are well-trained to handle such situations so that similar incidents would not happen again. In the 37-second video clip, the man, estimated to be around 50 to 55 years of age, was seen threatening to hit the officer with his umbrella during an argument over the towing of his car. The man then hit the officer's arm using his umbrella after which the officer punched his face before slamming him to the ground. The civilian was then seen lying in pain on the sidewalk with blood dripping from the back of his head. Several other people at the location came to the injured man's aid and pulled the officer away. The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Service (Cuepacs), on the other hand, has come to the defence of the MPSJ enforcement officer. In a statement, Cuepacs president Adnan Mat said the incident would not have happened if members of the public understood the duties of civil servants and accept what's coming to them for flouting the law. "In protecting himself from the assault, the officer had to defend himself from the risk of injuries that might be inflicted upon him during the incident," he said. Michelle Ng While he did not specifically mention any names, Adnan in his statement also threw a punch believed to be aimed at Ng, saying elected representatives should be fair in how they viewed the incident. He said members of the government, MPs and state assemblypersons"could not look at the issue only from the interest of a single party". Adnan added that passing judgement on social media was also unfair to the civil servant and urged the government to deliver stern punishment upon those who obstructed a civil servant's duty. Meanwhile, MPSJ president Noraini Roslan said the officer involved in the incident will be taken out of active duty while an investigation is conducted. She said an internal investigation into the matter would be carried out thoroughly and in a fair manner. According to Noraini, the incident happened when the officer wanted to tow away the man's car during an operation against vehicles that were obstructing traffic at the USJ 9 commercial area in Subang Jaya. The man, she added, became upset when action was taken against his car and tried to secure its release before arguing with the officer. "The traffic offence and the offence of assaulting an on-duty officer is clear in this incident. "At the same time, MPSJ is also looking seriously at the response of the enforcement officer," she said. Related Reports Read more: malaysiakini.com
Ppl supporting that official will sing a different tune if it was their elderlies. Next time an elderly is rude to me, maybe I should shout and shame the shit out of him without giving way to his age and seniority. Where is the empathy? 💦💦💦💦💦💦 Both sides should apologise... Not the only one side... Be a responsible mp or adun in make a statement..
Well it was smart move by both part parties bce MPSJ authority and Self Defencing! Good on you Uncle Wrong response. What if the old man dies of the injuries sustained? Will Michelle Ng take responsibility for the death of that old man? Michelle Ng should consult dapmalaysia legal bureau to sue the pants of MPSJ for assaulting an old man who was pleading for mercy.
Selfish deeds, obstructing others, blatantly ignoring laws & attacking officers etc. What can one expect from this kind including lawmakers demanding enforcement officers to apologise. The man is obviously older than 55, possibly 60+ judging by his shaky movements. Surely that officer could easily snatch the umbrella from the old fella? He is just a bully thats all.
Senior citizen wrong to use the umbrella. But hitting back and pushing down a senior citizen ? MPSubangJaya hannahyeoh michellengms Good for to publish this up. Its open secret that DAP politicians in particular this Subang Jaya rep is a racist.... What kind of shittery is this?
